Chinese Proverb Wednesday

Be not afraid of going forward slowly, be afraid only of standing still.

This needs to be put into context.  Standing still is not so bad.  Sometimes it takes standing still in order to bring a calm that provides balance.  I think that’s important.  But I don’t think that’s what this proverb is speaking to.

Grow.  That’s what this proverb is speaking to.  Growing means moving forward.  Growing takes bravery.  That’s where the “Be not afraid” part comes in.  Have the bravery to move yourself into places that may make you feel uncomfortable because they are new, but they are in your best interests.

I like to think about moving forward in two ways:  One way is with my head.  What is it that I “should” do.  And another way with my heart:  What is it that I feel I “want” to do.  Then evaluate them both and move forward accordingly.  If I feel uncomfortable, that’s a sign that my head needs to step in and make me do what needs to be done.  Remember, many Baby Steps can get you from here to there just as well as a few Giant Steps.  Maybe even better.
